3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe:
This one was another very nice beer from the brewery, I’m not entirely sure but my thinking is that last years came out slightly better but this one is still an excellent beer and one well worth picking up. The taste was a sweet and nutty one but certainly wasn’t overdone and managed to strike a great balance as I sipped away at it for quite some time; good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Look: Pours with average, thick/creamy light mocha top with some unwanted big bubbles. Good and steady retention, the head mostly diminishes but there is still fine lacing through. Clear, dark amber/brown (strong cherry hue), carbonation chains visible.
Smell: Toasty (white bread), caramel, sticky burned sugar and soft roast. Nuts, dates and other sweet dry fruits, light hay from hops.
Taste: Light, playful sweetness at start, mostly caramel, burned sugar and candy that goes to nuts and dry fruits. Continues to light/medium sweet middle with grain and caramel notes. Ends with very light sugary bitterness form noble hops. Some roast, honey and dates come out in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium light heavy, lively carbonation, very chewy.
Overall: One of the prime examples of the style, worth a try and an easy go to beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crystal clear deep amber with ruby red reflections and a medium light beige-tan pillowy head. Noses of caramel, toffee, toasted bread, treacle-sirup malt with light faint herbal notes to it. Lightly carbonated and softly textured. Leans to the malty sweet side with a sugared her note. Surprising light body offering overall a high drinkability - quaffable! the finish is harmonically lingering on the palate. Excellent dunkel!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like caramel malts, chocolate and bit of raisins. Tastes sweet, almost no bitterness. Its a honest dunkel with high drinkability, like a little brother of a belgian dubbel.
